This Mid-Autumn Festival, feed your eyes on a kaleidoscope of colours along the streets of Chinatown, and warm your belly with traditional mooncakes and sips of fragrant tea.
Organised by the Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng Citizens' Consultative Committee, events this year include the annual light-up ceremony, cultural performances and student projects.
Everything is Illuminated
Chinatown comes alive on 3 September when thousands of incandescent lanterns and lights are turned on to mark festivities for the Mid-Autumn Festival. The light-up ceremony features awe-inspiring visual effects and spectacular live performances on stage.
Follow the brilliant balloons that lead the way to People's Park Complex, to the Festive Bazaar, happening from 2 to 15 September. Uncover surprises and treats from mooncakes and preserved fruit, to even antique ornaments and traditional clothing.
The dramatic illumination of Chinatown is enlivened by the enthusiasm of Singapore’s students. Not only are the lighting sets for the precinct’s Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations conceptualised by students at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, over 500 school children will also put on a spell-binding display of lantern decorations in the annual Lantern Painting Competition on 28 August!
